Field

Field, In physics, a region in which each point is affected by a force. [1]

A matrix of invisible energy, or a ‘field’, is a way of explaining, ‘action at a distance.’ Contact forces - forces acted upon when objects are touched (as in friction) - can be explained by Newton's laws of motion. Non-contact forces - forces acted upon when objects are not touched (as in gravity) - are only described by the field. These fields are invisible, but we need to understand them before we can find explanations for the many natural phenomena of our world.

We are in the age of building information modeling, however, this does not mean the whole process of design is perfectly automated to achieve intelligence and singularity at every point of space, and especially to reflect its context. The grid system, for example, has, since modernism, been commonly incorporated, as a space basis of design, into many fields of design. It should be noted, though, that in the grid system, both the performative and aesthetic qualities of each cell become rather repetitive and less adaptive. This is where the field itself takes on a new importance with its excellent capacity, with progressive quantification at points of space that are manipulated by magnitude and directionality.
